GHP Thursday Brown Bag Seminar: How Understanding U.S. Racism is Relevant to Global Health

October 21 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Mary Bassett

Please join the Department of Global health and Population this Thursday, October 21st from 1-2pm (EST) via zoom for this week’s Brown Bag Seminar featuring Dr. Mary T. Bassett, MD, MPH

How Understanding U.S. Racism is Relevant to Global Health
The year 2020 saw a new phrase “structural racism” enter the broader public discourse . COVID-19 swept the globe and so did mass protests at the public execution of George Floyd. Not only was the world horrified at the gruesome spectacle, the danger of state violence to radicalized groups resonated from Cape Town to Rio to London and beyond. In this talk I will review how the team at FXB has framed structural racism and how dismantling structural racism is allied to the movement to decolonize global health.

Thursday, October 21st from 1-2pm (EST) via zoom
Registration is required. The seminar is open to all.
